Today, BookEnds literary agent Jessica Faust defines some of the important terms and phrases in the publishing biz. Faust’s short Publishing Dictionary is listed on her BookEnds agency blog.
The dictionary includes definitions for things like advance, mass market, imprint, query, royalities, sell-through, and world rights. All written in a straight forward and easy to understand style. Well worth checking out.
Faust’s agency blog is one of my favorites because it has the kind of helpful information a writer can really use.
